7:00 am
record books. >> [ bleep ]. >> it is a troubling situation. i'm serious, it is. give him a shot. good morning, and welcome to "sunday today" , i'm willie geist. donald trump and hillary clinton in final preparations for tonight's second presidential debate, and the spotlight on trump will be white hot after the release friday from a tape from 2005 in which trump makes repeated, ugly, aggressively demeaning comments against women. so far 150 republican leaders
7:01 am
this campaign. more than 40 since friday when the tape was released. we'll hear from one man who abandoned trump and another who's sticking by his side. later, the man behind the music. ryan tedder and his band one republic have a long list of hits but tedder is the mace stroh called by the biggest stars in music when they need a hit of their own. >> why is it that taylor swift, adele, beyonce, all of these acts that are the biggest in the world, why do they call what is the ryan tedder thing? >> i think what i do maybe that's specific to me is i have a certain emotional currency in the lyrics and melodies that i do. >> we'll talk to ryan in just a bit. let's begin this morning with the fallout from those tapes of donald trump first reported on friday by "the washington post." despite a growing list of republicans withdrawing their support and repeated calls for him to get out of the race, trump says he's not going anywhere. nbc's hallie jackson is in st.
7:02 am
hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey, willie, a big night. today the potential of more fallout. trump's team shaken and strategizing. the campaign manager and head of the party pulling out of shows. trump says he is sticking around. a deiant donald trump with a fist pump delighting his supporters outside trump tower, but inside what one source close to the campaignes paralysis. after a day of reckoning within the gop, dozens of republican members of congress taking back support of their nominee, including all female republican senators except iowa's joni ernst. >> i am telling you who i'm not supporting and that's hillary clinton. >> reporter: the fallout coming after this recording surfaced from ""access hollywood"" a program owned by nbc universal. >> i don't even wait. and when you're a star, they let
7:03 am
grab them by the [ bleep ]. >> reporter: john mccain deciding trump's hot mike moment was too much. vulnerable senators like rob portman and kelly ayotte saying they will write in mike pence as they send a warning shot hinting how much rides on trump's debate performance tonight declining to appear at a wisconsin festival where house speaker paul ryan sent a signal of his own. >> let me start off by saying there is a bit of the room. and it is a troubling situation. i'm serious, it is. >> reporter: trump's making clear he won't step down or back down from attacks against bill clinton retweeting juanit broadderick twice, the woman who accuses president clinton of rapin gher.
7:04 am
attacked, shamed and attacked his victims. we will discuss this morning in the coming days. see you at the debate on sunday. >> reporter: that, part of trump's 90 second video statement saying sorry to the public and to his wife apparently privately. melania trump saying she's accepted her husband's apology for comments she considered unacceptable and offensive even as already more controversial audio has been revealed like this older interview with howard stern. >> your >> can i say this, a piece of [ bleep ]. >> trump's base of support unswayed. >> i just think we all need to stick together as republicans and we can't let hillary win, we just can't. >> reporter: tonight's debate set to cap one of the most extraordinary weekends of 2016. a campaign and a party in crisis. and this morning we're getting an early snapshot of what americans think donald trump should do.
7:05 am
find 45% of voters believe he should stay in the race, 39% think he should drop out. willie? >> hallie, the clinton campaign has been quiet. calling the statements horrific. snl imagined the campaign's reaction. >> it made me feel just horrible and very depressed. i'm sorry, brooke. i mean, i day for our country and for all women, minus one. >> so, hallie, as you sd in your piece there, the trump campaign obviously is going to go there on the past of president bill clinton. how does hillary clint handle that in the debate tonight? >> reporter: the campaign has been strategizing about that. one source tells nbc that the campaign held a cference c wie outsideeo? allies in whic they previewed their strategy, willie.
7:06 am
until the debate tonight, to essentially not put more in the words of one person, more spin on the ball, if you will, letting trump languish in this media cycle. there was a little bit of a hint as to how clinton will respond. in that video statement trump released he did not apologize to the women he was talking about or to women in general. that could be something we hear reflected from clinton tonight. >> hallie, thank you very much. debate taking place behind hallie a little bit later this evening. this. the revelations of the comments led more than 20 national republicans to say he should drop out of the race. steve cortez is a member of trump's hispanic advisory council and hugh hewett who pulled his support and called for trump to get out of the race. trump, good morning. >> good morning, willie. >> good morning, willie. >> i want to read for you a portion of john mccain's
7:07 am
concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boyess of sexual assaults make it impossible to continue supporting his candidacy. hugh, why did you decide to pull your support and say that donald trump should get out of the race for the good of the country? >> i think it's in the best interests of the country, the campaign, the republican party all the way up and down the ticket and his own family and mr. trump to exit and do so in a way that will earn him some credit from not just the republican party but historians. i think he suffered the most devastating political hit over the weekend since you'll remember the sports injury, joe theismann getting hit by lawrence taylor 31 years ago. everyone knew theismann couldn't finish the game. i think tonight will be cringe inducing if he brings up the infidelities of president clinton, which are so far beyond his own in the past that he bragged about on the tape, that that will be an explosive day.
7:08 am
resemble nixon's final days when there aren't many people willing to talk to you, much less come out and support you. >> hugh, what was it about the comments? why wasn't it the fat shaming of a foreign miss universe, why did this change your opinion now and not those other things? >> there are a number of reasons behind that. first of all, the comments are objectively and unqualify bring disgusting. i cringe every time i hear them played because children around the room. it's a replay of the '90s. that's unlike the other issue. there's always been a margin of error for mr. trump. you can always attribute to him when, for example, he came down the escalator. although those remarks have been misrepresented. what he said was among those mexican immigrants who are coming into the country are some rapists. there are ways to have given him the benefit of the doubt and he did win the republican nomination. it cannot be taken from him but i'll say this, willie, if this
7:09 am
cleveland he would not be the nominee today. i hope he wants to salvage his family name, his business, his dignity and just get out. >> steve, you have stuck by donald trump through a lot of stories like this over the last 18 months or so. did you consider at any time in the last 36 hours pulling your support for donald trump? >> well, look, i think everyone has to at least consider it, right, in a moment like this? i have enormous respect for hugh hewett but we owe him a listen tonight. he needs to speak directly to the american people. he needs to explain himself. i would also say i'm a believer in forgiveness and redemption. contrary to hillary clinton, we're not irredeemable. he gave a very unreserved apology which i'm glad and he needed to do. his remarks were absolutely unreprehensible. i'm a father of three daughters and i also cringe when i hear those kind of comments that he
7:10 am
i frankly hope i never hear them again. i also say this. we have two flawed candidates. two largely, incredibly disliked candidates. they have a starkly different vision for america and i believe the american people, given those two visions, status quo and growth and prosperity and security on donald trump's part, i believe that they are going to opt for donald trump's vision for america. clearly the onus is on him he has to make the case. >> you mentioned your daughters, your family, i'll ask. what were the conversations like as your daughters and your wife asked you how you continue to support donald trump after these comments were made public? >> right. thankfully they're all still enthusiastically supporting donald trump. all embarrassed. i talked to my oldest daughter on the phone on my way here. i don't want dad embarrassing her, right, on air? i don't want to do anything that would shame my family. they said, look, we have a very different vision for america than hillary clinton.
7:11 am
candidate that is in favor of the status quo, which is slow growth and terror on the march. those are more important issues, this is from my teenage daughter, willie, into politics, i care more about the economy and isis than i do about donald trump talking crassly over a decade ago. >> steve cortez sticking at the side of donald trump. hugh hewett stepping away. let's bring in moderator of chuck, you said something last night on "nightly news" that grabbed me. you said it's a 50-50 shot that donald trump shows up tonight. what did you mean by that? >> i mean just that. i think, look, it's clear this morning and people i've talked to, he's determined to go tonight. but you could easily make the calculation that there's nothing that he can say tonight that won't turn it into a debacle, that he is not prepared for this debate, he has not done -- look, he was not prepared for this
7:12 am
throw this on top of it. is he in a state of mind that won't send him to a point where he will do things even worse or say things even worse tonight that will cause even more problems? it won't surprise m if someone gives him the advice, take the hit for not showing up. it might be better than watching what happens in this 90 minutes tonight. i'll be honest with you, willie, we've never seen anything like this. this in a presidential debate. >> do you think if he does show up, chuck, he's going to do what he threatened to do? even in his apology it's to, quote, go nuclear against hillary clinton? that means bringing up the past, bringing up bill clinton and his past. will that be the strategy? is that the way through this for donald trump? >> it's -- i -- he's a wounded animal. that's the way somebody described him. he's a wounded animal.
7:13 am
tonight. he has -- every time his behavior with women has been brought up in the past, he immediately pivots to this. i can't imagine that he won't do that tonight because he's done it before and he's threatened it before and he did it in that, you know, video. i think he's getting all the advice in the world to not do that, but what's the evidence that he won't? >> could be an ugly night in st. louis. chuck, we're going to check back in with you later in the show. well rudy giuliani and mike lee who has called for trump to get out of the race. we'll be streaming it on and you can watch it on msnbc. our other big story this morning, the damage from what was hurricane matthew, the storm turning towards the atlantic. miguel almaguer is in wilmington, north carolina, where cleanup is underway. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:14 am
even after hurricane matthew blew out to sea, it left behind plenty of misery. yesterday in this area there were nearly 600 water rescues. today unfortunately four people still remain missing. hundreds of rescuers remain in this area. they're scouring local neighborhoods. walking through flood water making sure everyone is okay. more than 11 inches of rain fell in this area. the hurricane responsible for 11 deaths here in the u.s. meantime, as you mentioned, that some estimates put the damage at between 4 to $6 billion. of course, this hurricane pummelled florida, the carolinas and georgia. all four of those states were in a state of emergency. the cleanup effort should take sefrt days -- several days if not weeks. officials are trying to clean the area. willie, the weather turning better but the cleanup is going to take quite some time.
7:15 am
staggering pictures. miguel almaguer, thanks. we'll get dylon's forecast in a second. an armed suspect shot and killed two police officers and wounded another. the officers were called to the suspect's home for domestic disturbance when he opened fire. police caught him 12 hours later. one of the officers was a 27-year-old woman who had just given birth four months ago. the other, a 35-year-old veteran of the force who was just months in san francisco a scary scene when a recreational sailboat overturned spilling 30 people, including several children, into the frigid waters below. some of the victims were trapped under the sailboat. nearby boaters were able to jump in and get them to safety before rescuers arrived. two children were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. chicago cubs fans are cautiously dreaming of breaking the curse last year. last night's playoff game had
7:16 am
moment. kyle hendricks was hit by a line drive, had to leave the game. his replacement though, pitcher travis wood, later hit a home run. the first by a reliever since 1924. the cubs lead the giants by two games to none in the first round of the playoffs. as promised, dylann is here. >> we're seeing matthew wind down. it's no longer a tropical system, it's post delaware. flash flood warnings across parts of north carolina and norfolk, virginia, picked up 7.5 inches of rain. it's post tropical at this point, but still has winds of 75 miles per hour. all that means is instead of gaining all of its energy from the ocean, it's more like a regular storm at this point. it will continue to move to the east. we're not expecting the full on loop back down into the bahamas. we have a cold front in the northeast drawing up the
7:17 am
new york, new jersey, long island. it will last into southeastern massachusetts until monday morning. once it clears out we'll see much better conditions. and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, get you a chair. >> yeah, there has to be a chair somewhere. >> get the pregnant lady a chair. dylan is sticking around.

7:22 am
she was cuffed and thrown in the back of the cruiser. she literally asked for it. she wanted to get arrested off her bucket list. the fine men and women at the st. louis pd were helped. as they placed her in the vehicle she asked, do you think you could put those handcuffs on me? >> did you enjoy your ride this morning? >> oh, yes. handcuffs and all. >> how great is edie simms. >> i feel like she brought them cookies. >> right off the next goes to the feeling when you lose your lacrosse game to an intense game of rock, paper and scissors. they were tied when their game was called off because of lightning so how to determine a winner? how about a best of three series of rock, paper, scissors for all the marbles? >> rock, paper, scissors, shoot! >> oh. >> oh. >> so close. >> rock, paper, scissors, shoot!

what is the weight of all of these senators starting with john mccain going down the list to congressmen, congress women in the republican party saying why not vote for him but he should get out of the race. does that matter? is his campaign so antiestablishment that he can brush that aside? >> well, he can hope to brush it aside. it does matter because, you know, they -- the reason they're saying this, they need to find their way to 50% to win re-election. that's why it matters. this is n trump anymore. this is every republican for themselves and this is about their own survival. so the problem though, the line they're walking here is they still need trump supporters to show up because they need his votes to get to 50% but they also need the voters that are -- want to vote republican but are totally turned off by trump and i think that's their struggle here. that's why you've seen these odd denouncements, right?

new hampshire trump has a strong base and so you don't want to alienate them but it's not enough to win. that's why this has been, i think, so tortuous for so many republicans. >> given the utter disaster that's been 48 hours for donald trump's campaign, is there anything he can do or say tonight to make things better? >> withdraw from the race. i think the best -- if he put -- if he said i'm putting the party above myself, i know it seems like a radical proposal there's really no foreseeable way to actually replace him on the ballot, but if he did that, that actually would be the most uniting moment for the party, a unifying moment. that's not donald trump. that's not who we've been covering for the last 15 years let alone the last 15 months. so i highly doubt it, but i think it's the only move he could make that would actually unify the party and perhaps save the party at least on the congressional level. >> that's been the suggestion

my goal was to finally get in shape. not to be focusing on my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis. so i made a decision to talk to my dermatologist about humira. humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas if you've had fungal in tb, hepatitis b,on, an are prone tonfections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores don't start humira if you have an infectio
